    • So, What Are You Listening To NOW?
      I love it. And Benny Green, yeah !   Hank is so fantastic , I love to hear his solos, each aspect of it, and the nice quotes from other songs. Never heard a better version of "Lullaby at Birdland" than this one. And Benny Green, really nice to hear, as Dex said once: The very very.......slippery ......trombonist ..... Benny Green ! The only downer for me is the Gene Krupa like drumming of Charles Persip. Well, he was a big band drummer, but hear it is uncomfortable to hear that old fashioned use of the bass drum so you almost can´t hear the bassist. So, while Hank is so hip, that rhythm section with a Gene Krupa like drumming really sounds stiff and does not support the soloists, but forces them to keep in a certain direction.  In my case, I try to avoid to listen to this drum style, but its hard for me since a band is as good as the drummer is.......

    • Willis Jackson sidemen
      It is interesting that Carl Wilson, the organ player, seems almost exclusively played with Willis Jackson and nobody else.  Did he retire after the Gator's death? https://www.discogs.com/ja/artist/477102-Carl-Wilson-2?type=Credits&filter_anv=0
